Plums were first enjoyed in China more than 2,000 years ago, before traveling to Europe in the Crusades and then landing in America in the 1700s. Today they’re a popular dessert or jam ingredient, especially when paired with spices. So relax with a cup of this jazzy black and green tea blend.

Kaleidoscope of T.E.A.
Kaleidoscope group member Marlys Arnold & her husband, Alan, both of Adventures with Tea share some magic we call “Kaleidoscope of T.E.A.” It’s a special blend of my monthly energy reading brew, steeped in T.E.A. (Thoughts, Energy & Actions), paired with a tea recommended by the Arnolds … one that represents the energy of the month, plus the adventures & experiences brought to mind.
About Marlys & Alan Arnold and Adventures with Tea
When Alan & Marlys Arnold launched their own line of artisan teas, they chose the name Adventures with Tea to emphasize that tea can be fun and creative, in addition to being tasty and healthy. But they don’t stop at promoting tea as a beverage – they also include it as an ingredient in everything from main dishes to desserts. Over the past two decades, they’ve developed hundreds of tea-infused recipes, many of which have been published in their eMagazine and blog. They teach cooking classes, and are authors of the Tea Explorations Journal. They’re also currently working on a cookbook.
